Puppy

Giant Step

My job as big sister had always been to provide the pep talk. He was like a puppy, hesitant to take any big new steps–unsure about his own abilities. I pushed, prodded, encouraged, supported. Eventually, finally, he gained the confidence to step out on his own and claim his future. My job as big sister was over and we could move on to something more interesting and equal.
